This suite is a must-have for anyone doing serious design work with Microsoft platforms such as Windows Presentation Foundation, Silverlight or even ASP.NET. In addition you get great tool such as Expression Encoder, which can encode videos for multiple platform (including the Zune) and even (with the Silverlight Streaming Publishing Plug-In) directly to your Silverlight Streaming account, a great place to store video and stream them to your friends’ computers.
Notice that Visual Studio Standard edition is also included in the offer, which makes it a complete suite for designing and coding Windows Presentation Foundation and Silverlight!! Go and grab your copy while the offer is valid!!
